The Aitbay sand-free waterproof blanket will make your next picnic a lot more comfortable, and you can say goodbye to dirty, soggy beach towels.

The large blanket comes in a super tiny travel case because nobody wants to carry a ton of stuff on a hot day. It can accommodate four to six people, so call your self-isolating friends for an outdoor get-together.

Once you’ve unraveled it, you can easily use its four anchor stakes to secure every corner into the sand. The Aitbay blanket also includes discreet pockets. Tuck away your belongings when you go for a dip in the ocean and to prevent the wind from blowing them away.

Fashioned from waterproof polyester materials you can easily brush any sand off of and stay dry. When you’re ready to head out, fold your blanket back up, put it in the carrying case and be on your way. It’s really that simple.

If you’re still unconvinced, maybe these glowing reviews will change your mind. 

“This thing is awesome. Sand doesn’t stick to this, is super small, and it drys fast,” one reviewer wrote

“This is a must-have for a sandy beach. It made our summer SO much more fun just by having it with us,” another said

“This makes beach days a bit easier. After using it, I found it does everything the description says,” one customer said

Weird things happen on beaches — like this guy who caught a shark with his bare hands and then posed with it.
